Magazines and Products With a Mission
I love art.... all kinds of art. My wife and I have an eclectic collection of art. She likes things a little more modern and edgy and I like a little of the edgy but I especially love representational art.
I also love art magazines and I get many of them. As a reader I was not seeing any of them produce what I wanted to read about and I learned that many others felt the same way. Since I made my living as a publisher I decided to research my idea. After two years of research I launched a very high quality art magazine about fine art.
I wanted fresh articles, not the same painters and subjects over and again. I wanted ideas and articles on collecting. I wanted to see collections that are never shown to the public and I wanted articles which were sophisticated, yet not so scholarly that they were dry. I wanted lots of high quality images of artworks and I wanted a format that did not require me months of reading to get through it. So that is what I created. The magazine is called FINE ART CONNOISSEUR and I'm proud to say that we've developed an amazing list of subscribers; including some celebrities, movies stars, broadway producers, business people and over 300 billionaires! But we have loads of art collectors and art lovers too.
I knew I was not qualified to edit such a magazine so I searched and found Peter Trippi a former director of the Dahesh Museum on Madison Avenue in New York, and a lifetime museum curator, art historian, and author. He has done an amazing job.
I hope you'll explore the magazine. It is on most newsstands including Barnes & Noble, Hudson News, plus others. If you don't find it there...ask. They sell out fast. Or you can check us out on our website to learn more about it.
I am also passionate about plein air painting. (Painting outdoors from life). Again I wanted the magazine I would want to read, and thus created plein air magazine, which you can find at Barnes & Noble, Hudson News and others.
